A day of benches

That’s what it felt like anyhow. My two benches and a noticeboard are now sited down at the duck feeding area off the coop car park in Holmfirth and they were officially opened yesterday. They feature the artwork of around 30 local schoolchildren ( i managed to include everyone) and there was even an outright winner, chosen by myself and Ashley Jackson. I made a bee sculpture for her based on her designs. Later on that same day it was the siting and opening of Hannah’s memorial bench in Hade Edge play park and my first ever mini bench for kids. Both benches feature kids drawings of meaningful images based on her life. A both poignant and lovely project to work on.
